Monta

Their SkyQuest Pepsi GMT is stunningly beautiful in black or white dial. And good luck finding a better bracelet on any of the other microbrands.

Monta is a final 4, maybe final 2 candidate 

·

I am not surprised that Vaer is losing, I am surprised that they are getting blown out.

·

Considering I've got a Vaer on the way, obviously going to go with that. The Monta's are nice, but don't offer the same smaller sizes that Vaer do.

I may be a bit biased here given my username, but I would vote MONTA everyday and twice on Sunday just for the bracelet design and comfort level😝😝

Final 4 here we come!!

I desperately wanted that Opaline Skyquest but couldn’t avoid a work meeting that coincided with the launch. Hopefully 2.0 has a similar version. Otherwise I have to hope one of the 50 sell one on eBay.

I've heard that the new Skyquest is listening to the people and what they want to see going forward 😉

This was my feeling on the black dialed pepsi Skyquest. I'm a known sucker for gilt with black dials (hello OG Black Bay 58) so when Monta came out with that version, it just blew me away. I aspire to own one someday in the future.

Poll closed for the tournament. Congratulations Monta!
